Martinez, Nov 2, 1899

Dear Prof Jordan

I would gladly give you an animal story for your book if I could but I have none unpublished the dog story has not yet gone into a book & therefore the Century co. would be naturally unwilling to part with it. but I think you might get at least part of the Ousel such as have appeared in several school readers
Im glad you are making a book on animals. Such books are greatly needed.

With best wishes

I am Cordially Yours
